Flexible partnership with your clients: the double diamond of coaching
The ICF core competencies “Establishes and maintains agreements” and “Maintains presence” ask the coach to partner with the client not only in what the client wants to talk about but also in how the coaching process is run.

Listen to Kirsten Dierolf, MCC talk about the five steps that help you partner with your client in a fruitful coaching session.
